Title: “Exploring the Deepest Snow in Alaska: Camping Adventures in Juno”

Hey there, adventure seekers! I’ve got an epic journey to share with you. Picture this: the majestic mountains of Juno, Alaska, covered in blankets of pristine snow. Yup, that’s where I’m headed!

So, let’s dive right in. Juno isn’t your average destination—it’s smack dab in the heart of a sprawling temperate rainforest. And guess what? It rains here a whopping 230 days a year! But when you climb those mountains, rain turns into snow, and oh boy, there’s a lot of it. We’re talking over 10 feet of fluffy goodness on average!

First stop? Mendenhall Glacier. If it were just a tad colder, I’d be strolling across that frozen wonder. But no worries, there’s plenty more adventure ahead. Now, let’s hit the slopes, or should I say, the backcountry. Eagle Crest Ski Resort might be closed today, but that’s not stopping us. Time to earn those turns!

But hold up! Once you venture beyond those resort boundaries, it’s a whole new ball game. Avalanches? Yep, they’re a real concern. Thank goodness for those trusty trees—they’re like nature’s safety nets.

Now, picture this: endless snow, breathtaking views, and yours truly, trudging through it all. It’s a workout, let me tell you. But hey, reaching the summit in under two hours? Not too shabby, even for an “out of shape” guy like me!

And the fun doesn’t stop there. Setting up camp in the snow? Oh, it’s a whole production. From digging out a cozy shelter to firing up the stove for some much-needed warmth, it’s all part of the experience.

But let’s talk food. Bacon-wrapped chicken skewers and fluffy couscous? Yes, please! And for dessert? Brownies with homemade whipped cream, because why not indulge a little in the great outdoors?

Now, about that shelter. Ever wondered how strong a snow cave really is? Well, I put it to the test, and let’s just say, I was seriously impressed. Mother Nature knows how to build a solid roof!

And before we wrap things up, let’s not forget the thrill of skiing back down those slopes. With seal skins on my skis, it’s all uphill from here—literally!
